Panasonic GH4 for shooting video is gonna be my new my camera very soon. I'm wondering what I should do about the lenses...
Should I buy a new one like Olympus 12-40mm 2.8 or buy a Metabones and use my Sigma 17-50 2.8?
I've been watching at some videos in youtube/vimeo and I really have the feeling that Sigma is not sharp enough... am I right? Any opinions about that?

The Lenses Every One-Person Band Wedding Videographer Needs

Cose-up of 50mm lens
So you started doing weddings and business is taking off. Your old clients have referred you to all their friends and money is starting to flow in. Now you’ve decided to step away from your kit lenses and old tripod in exchange for supports and lenses that will take your game to the next level.

Okay, so I just ordered my 70d upgrading from my 60d. I plan on shooting my first short film in the coming month. I know I want to have a wide lens, but otherwise any suggestions on some solid lenses  would be awesome. I'm probably gonna spend $500 on a lens and rent the rest.

Okay onto the question. I am a novice videographer and so far I've made a decent intro into the craft with just my kit lenses on my 600D & 500D, now I want to step up my arsenal for better front end quality. I initially didn't want to invest too much money and then later realize "HEY YOU SUCK AT THIS" or "HEY I DON'T LIKE THIS". Thankfully none of those seem to be reality (yet) and hopefully never. I've already made up my mind about getting the Canon EF 50mm 1/8.

Hi Guys
I've just upgraded to a Canon 600d and wondered if someone could give me a straight forward answer about which lens to choose for film, without all the indepth technical stuff. (Cheaper the better, because i'm still learning).

I'm after makes/models that will fit the Canon 600d with links if possible.

Cheers in advance

I've posted quite a few bits of info concerning Canon DSLR's that dealt primarily with the technical aspects of cameras like the 5DmkII, 7D and 1DmkIV such as exposure ratings, and CMOS issues. Even found you guys some hardcore videos comparing DSLR's head-to-head against film cameras!
